Lost and alone, Pittwater whale calf seeks its mum
A two-weeks-old baby humpback whale calf is trying to bond with yachts in Sidney harbour, after mistaking the boats for its mother. Desperate attemps are underway to save it.
AN attempt to reunite a lost and confused whale calf with a pod has failed.
The baby was originally spotted off the western side of Lambert Peninsula earlier this week.
Confused and alone, it was attempting to nuzzle a moored yacht in the mistaken belief it was its mother.
The heartbreaking scene in the waters off Pittwater, north Sydney, left National Parks and Wildlife crews fearful for the calf's future.
